Cases of Kennel Cough Reported at Grand Junction Dog Parks
My two rescue dogs are everything to Savannah and me, we often joke about how many decisions are based on the dogs being comfortable. They are our family members so we will always try to keep them safe so when we heard about reports of kennel cough being traced back to dog parks in Grand Junction we wanted to know all the details.
The first I had ever heard of this was through a Grand Junction buy and trade Facebook group where a post was made regarding kennel cough. The person who made the post said there have been a few cases with her furry family member being one of the unfortunate ones who contracted kennel cough. The online post encouraged dog owners to avoid the parks for a few weeks as the horrible virus passes.
No Specific Dog Park in Grand Junction Was Mentioned With Linked Kennel Cough Cases
My dogs love visiting the dog parks here in Grand Junction especially the one at Canyon View Park just off 24 Road as that one has the water that Koda loves to swim in. We all know the water isn't exactly clean but the dogs love it. They also enjoy the new Las Colonias Park dog area, although that one can fill up quickly. The problem is that no specific dog park was mentioned in the post online so it might be best to avoid dog parks for a while to keep your pups safe and healthy.
What Should I Do If My Dog Contracts Kennel Cough?
Most cases of kennel cough will work themselves out by just resting for a week or two. If the symptoms continue you can always seek treatment through your veterinarian. Let's hope this passes quickly so we all can go back to enjoying the dog park again soon.
